... if this is even possible?

Has there been an influx of blue as the preferred icon color the latest years?

With somewhat degraded eyes, this has started to become a problem for me.

I want to have Firefox Developer edition installed, but I have to settle for the standard edition. Why ? Because the standard edition has a distinct orange icon. I am not able to quick glance at the task bar and see the difference between what window is Firefox Dev (blue icon), Outlook (blue icon), VSCode (blue icon), Azure Data Studio (blue icon), WebStorm (blue icon), 1Password (blue icon) or MS Edge (blue icon).

My problem is that my web browser (in this case Firefox) is the application I most often switch back and forth between and the struggle is real... I have to spend a lot of time looking at the task bar to acuatlly be able to see what icon is Firefox Developer Edition.

I don't need this as a feature in Firefox, necessarily, just some tips or tricks if there is any icons in the program folder e.g. I can swap out.

There are other threads about this, but the solutions given haven't worked for me. I'm using Mullvad VPN, and whenever it's on, I cannot search for anything regardless of my search engine, and pretty much the only website that will open is Tumblr. For anything else, the URL will be in the bar at the top, but it won't do anything beyond that; it won't even show the loading symbol. It worked very briefly when I first got the VPN, but now it doesn't. Other browsers work with my VPN. What am I supposed to do?

"Firefox needs to download font…" sudden request that didn‘t let me skip

Hi, I‘m not sure if I selected the right topic for my question but I can‘t find an answer to my query anywhere, so here goes:

When I opened Firefox on my Mac today (all up-to-date), a pop-up request by Firefox (cf. attached picture) showed up: "Firefox needs to download the font "Weibei SC". "Weibei SC" is 17,4 MB." with the options "Skip" and "Download".

Puzzled by this odd request, I wanted to skip it, but anytime I clicked skip the window would pop up again. I never clicked on download and I actually closed and reopened the browser, without having it show up again. I even restarted my device and reopened Firefox but it didn‘t show up again.

Now, I want ro believe that there is nothing to worry about, that it was a software blunder of some sort and that maybe normally it just installs fonts in the background without me knowing. But for the sake of my own peace of mind, I‘d feel more comfortable if someone who knows the software better than I do, explain to me what this was or might have been, and hopefully that it was nothing harmful.

Thank you!

It worked well yesterday and then it updated to 127.0.1 and now i can not open it. I get XUL Runner not compatible. It is on a windows 10 computer.

All my information bookmarks and passwords, but I have no way to get to them, uninstalled and reinstalled, but the new one doesn't look like the old version, and none of my information is there. I have tried copying the profile folder from and pasting it in the folder. but still nothing. I have it set as default, but the new one wants to be default, so when I go to make it my default I have 2 Firefox to choose from along with chrome, and edge.

My other problem is I have been using Firefox for probably 20 plus years, so there is a lot of saved stuff, but not sure what my previous user name and log in was. I have downloaded and older version and of course i updated also. I have a Firefox that works now, but not the one with all of my information.

Sorry if this makes no sense, no really sure how to explain it differently.

Can some one please help me figure out how to get all my bookmarks and passwords back?

Thank you.

Hello,

I've recently uploaded a custom-made extension to the Chrome Web Store for my personal use and for a few specific users. It's currently awaiting review.

However, I'm encountering an issue where I cannot download and use the extension myself. When attempting to download, I receive the message "Download failed. Please check your connection."

Although I can see the extension listed on the store (since it's mine), I'm unable to use it personally.

Could you please assist me with resolving this issue?

Thank you.

Hi, the site "https://pixabay.com/" is suddently extremely slow with mozilla. The pictures don't showup or take many minutes before you can see them. Normally only white boxes show. The same site (pixabay) with the browser "Opera" works perfectly. I always use mozilla and since a short while it just doesn't work with pixabay (a site for royalty-free images). Can you please fix it? Thanks. Regards Elisabeth

In seeking a way to reduce the CPU & RAM usage, I read that perhaps turning on the Hardware Acceleration might help. And to do that, you must first de-select the default setting which says FF will use the best settings for my computer. Well, when I opened that section, neither one was checked! So, should I first try the default setting, and if that doesn't help, then try HA? I'd always heard not to use HA, for some reason, but I'm ready for trying anything that might help use less resources, and open webpages more consistently.

Which is the best setting to use, or neither one?

Hi. About 2-3 weeks ago all of my websites that I use to started making me log in.

I seemed to have lost all of my saved passwords so I typed them all back in.

Now, most of them make me press the log on button and then my userid and password are primed in there so all I have to do is press enter.

I find this kind of frustrating. I don't recall changing any settings. Any ideas to change this?

Thank you.
